. >> is she right? what difference does it make? or is she wrong? >> i think it does make a difference, john, but i think she handled herself extremely well. there are three questions. why was security not provided despite the pleas. why was help not sent to these guys over seven hours of attacks, and what is responsible for the massive cover-up and fake stories about this video, anti-muslim video. she said to the third, i had nothing to do with the talking points, nothing to do with the military, i take responsibility for the lack of security. however, all these memos and cables that came, they all didn't come into my office personally, but i take responsibility. i think she handled it well, john. and the issue i think is pretty much gone now, and the republicans did it not succeed in what they were trying to cue. >> how would you describe hillary clinton at the house and the senate hearings? what kind of an adjective would you use? >> i would say she was commanding, i would say she was presidential. she came across very much as someone who is shouldering responsibility but she also avoided
material. his old pal and fellow vietnam veteran john mccain jumped all over him for opposing the search --the surge in iraq. >> were you correct or not to say that the surge would be the month dangerous foreign policy blunder since vietnam? correct or incorrect? yes or no? are you going to answer the question? the question is, where you're right or wrong? that is a pretty straightforward question. i would like for you to answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> i am not going to give you a yes or no answer -- >> hagel finally gave the answer on the surge that he wanted to give. >> i saw the consequences and suffering and horror of war, so i did question a surge. will this be worth the sacrifice? we lost almost 1200 american during that period was it required, necessary? >> how much of that exchange was political, how much was personal, and how much was related to the defense policy? >> 92, 11, 13. a lot of it was personal. one could not watch those hearings without feeling there were a lot of personal grudges but, even vendettas, being settled. >> c
tonight from nbc's john yang. >> reporter: today family and friends mourned 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, killed yesterday in a quiet south side neighborhood less than a mile from president obama's chicago home. just last week, she was in washington for the inauguration as a member of her high school drill team. >> hurts to know that another good one is gone. >> she was shot once in the back as she huddled with a group of teens under a canopy, escaping the rain. >> she was with her crowd, the kids doing the right things, the kids with promising futures, trying to become somebody special. >> reporter: since saturday, chicago has reported 11 homicides, nine by gunshot. the toll on parents across the country is mounting. shirley chambers hangs up the suit she just bought for her son, ronnie, the suit he'll be buried in. 33-year-old ronnie chambers was killed on chicago's west side early saturday, shot in the head with what police say was an assault weapon. >> i thought sure ronnie was going to grow to be an old man. i really did. but god called him home. >> reporter: he was shirley chambers
? or is the recovery stalling out pat buchanan? >> i think basically it is true, john. the u.s. economy is out of the intensive care it was in, in 2007-2008 but it has been walking the hospital halls ever since. the growth has been growing at an average of about 2%, unemployment is where it was when barack obama took office, we are adding about 150,000 jobs a month, but john, the real problem here is this slow growing is occurring when we have had five straight trillion dollars worth of defense deficits to pump it up and we get $85 billion a month in transfusions a month from the fed and we are still limping along like a mature and quite frankly modest economy. >> eleanor? >> i think these numbers reflect the fact that government is shrinking and the defense department really pulled back in the last quarter of last year. it is a cautionary sign and looks like both parties are kind of sleepwalking their way toward a sequester. the ropes don't want to -- the republicans don't want to give up anything on the revenue side they would rather take a hit in spending. the democrats have protect social
, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
." ♪ psh push >>> i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. why is john mccain so angry? 40 years after the vietnam p.o.w.s came home, the most famous of them is angrier than ever. why is america, why are we fighting the vietnam war all over again in the united states senate? the ticked off vitriol against chuck hagel, what is it about? is it for show? is it about something hagel said in the cloakroom? is it the unfairness of vietnam itself, that some went and some didn't? is it about johnson's inability to win that war or end it? what burns so deeply in john mccain these days? it seems to excite those who knew nothing about vietnam but want to replay it. we dig into the deep well of resentment burning in john mccain's patriotic heart. a resentment not against the north vietnamese who imprisoned and tortured him all those years, not against george w. bush and his political henchmen who tried to stain mccain's reputation back in 2000, but against a guy who fought against fear and rallied against wounds just like he did in the same army of america's long nightmare in vietnam,
of what we've done and what is left to do. >> and as she leaves the state department this afternoon, john kerry will arrive to be sworn in by justice alina keggen, and nor sentimental sendoff. 30 rock ends its seven-year run with lots of laughs and familiar faces. >> looked like another cold one in the midwest. >> bundle up, everyone. if you can, get hit by a car. >> according to the national weather service, you should, and i quote, leave work, get in your purpose bentley and be home with your sharks. >> if the democratic party controlled congress, i would see to it that he was punished in the worst way possible by having to come down here and listen to us. >> the show earned 14 emmys, had countless guest star appearances, some famous, and some not so famous. good day. i'm andrea mitchell. live in washington. good news and bad news in today's jobs report. the unemployment rate inched closer to 8%, but more than 150,000 jobs were added in january. revisions to last year's data showed stronger job growth than first predicted. joining me now forrure daily fix, chris, msnbc contributor and m
texas senator john cornyn, who has decided to make himself the de facto leader of the hagel opposition. >> the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense has already done damage to the united states' credibility in its attempt to deny iran a nuclear weapon. >> hagel is also likely to face questions about his position on gay rights after his 1998 comments, criticizing a u.s. ambassador nominee as openly, aggressively gay. hagel apologized and that former adviser, james hormel, now supports hagel's nomination. but much of the opposition to hagel is rooted in his loud split with the republican party over the iraq war and skepticism about his willingness to use force. in an interview with cnn, vice president biden argued that hagel is no dove. >> the idea of getting engaged in a ground war, in a country that's in transition is not a precipitation any military man would suggest. >> in many ways, obama's pick of hagel, who he forged a relationship with in the senate, then traveled with to afghanistan and iraq in july of 2008, along with cia nominee john brennan and incomin
here. >> good to be here. >> let's take a listen. john mccain is just now questioning, so let's listen in. >> sure. >> great members of this committee who have contributed so much to our nation's defense. senator hagel, members of this committee will raise questions reflecting concerns with your policy positions. they're not reasonable people disagreeing, they're fundamental disagreements. our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your world view on critical areas of national security including security in the middle east. with that in mind, let me begin with your opposition to the surge in iraq. 2006 we lost -- republicans lost the election and we began the surge, and you wrote a piece in "the washington post," quote, leaving iraq honorably. 2007 you committed -- you said it's not in the national interest to deepen its military involvement. in january of 2007 in a rather bizarre exchange with secretary rice in the foreign relations committee after some nonsense about syria and crossing the border into iran and syria because of the surge, then a reference to
. >> let me get this straight. you think the whole yes or no back and forth between john mccain and chuck hagel on the 2007 iraq surge was actually par for the course, that that was -- >> in fact, kind of interesting, right? >> in terms of a psychodrama. >> the republican party was over the iraq war, where they are attacking him as for opposing the iraq war. >> it's not that i don't think we can talk about the iraq war or the war in afghanistan for that matter, but the notion that you should have a yes or no answer to the iraq surge, which in many ways -- john mccain thinks the history books have been written on this. i believe -- >> no, it's still an open debate. absolutely. >> it's ongoing. we still -- >> people did vote against the iraq surge. that seems to be a totally relevant thing to talk about now. >> i think the iraq surge is relevant. i think asking for a yes or no answer on it seems particularly short-sighted. >> not defending that. >> in the "new york times" there is an op ed that says the senators, especially republicans, did a poor job of drawing substance out of the moment,
to the constitution limits what we can do about guns. >>> senator john mccain appeared at a breakfast in washington where he told a joke about himself and the low approval ratings of his colleagues. >> a guy ran up in the airport and say anybody tell you look like john mccain? i said, yeah. he says, doesn't it sometimes make you mad as hell? >> that's your morning dish of scrambles politics. >>> we tern to nbc meteorologist bill karins with the weather channel forecast. good morning you to, bill. >> the last 48 hours have been a blur. so much cleanup to be done. now we're doing it in bitterly cold temperatures, too. the problem is all the way up through connecticut. look at these wind gusts. we just gusted to 52 miles per hour in hartford. 55 in bridgeport. that is enough to shake the house and wake a lot of people up. if you're driving at this hour, if you can, well, don't. wait another half hour. things will improve in connecticut. again, all of these really strong winds are now heading to boston. boston just clocked in. that is the highest i've seen in new england. 59 mile-per-hour wind gusts. w
. >> she has. john kerry has big shoes to fill. but i don't think shoes are the right world. the president of the foreign relations community said it. >> i would say that john kerry has some fire lee large manola manola baloniks to fills. >> that was very good. >> the no m -- how tall would be he if he was in a pair of manola baloniks. >> he was a monster. >> i don't think he would walk in them like hillary condition. >> i think they are a brand of shoes. i had no idea. >> i thought i was the only stupid one out there. i didn't know what they were talking about. >> i did know that. i did know that. >> of course. >> of course. i had no idea. only at 6:00 a.m. in the morning can you have a conversation with malona baloniks. >> tina turner -- they were famous before tina, but it's known that tina dances in manola balonisk. >> i thought she was talking -- he was talking about the glasses. she has the anti-concussion glasses. >> they are very expensive shoes. >> $3,000 a pop. >> i know this because i used to watch sex and the city. >> the fac
member. do you think the majority led by people like, well, john boehner and cantor are actually going to put their fingers on an immigration bill and pass it? >> i think they will, chris, and i hope they will. i think especially with the november election, the american people made it clear, i believe, that they want the congress and they want the president to tackle this issue and to finally get it done. i think what we've seen in the last few days is very promising, first with the senate proposal and now the president's proposal. at least we know we're having a serious discussion about it and we're more or less on the same field. >> i have always liked schumer politically and rubio, the fact he's with them, lindsey graham, i respect them all. given who they are. they're all different politics. are you surprised that rubio, who is obviously gunning for the presidency, has been able to make a deal with someone like chuck schumer of new york who is a liberal? is this something that can be done across the country, liberal/conservative compromise with teeth and also with something for peo
saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigrati
is now. >> jennifer: joining me now to discuss the hearings today on gun laws is john rosenthal, founder of stop handgun violence. he is coming to us from west newton, massachusetts, john welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you jennifer >> jennifer: how effective can state and local laws be when federal laws are still so weak. >> massachusetts has proven you can be pretty darn effective. we have the most comprehensive gun flaws the nation. we're an urban industrial state. we have the lowest firearm fatality rate in the nation. and we border states that don't require background checks. but the bad news jen, like you said, it's virtually the equivalent of a 9/11 attack every month and a half to two months in america. a classroom every three days is emptied from gun violence, and we are hearing that it is hard for members of congress to require a background check for gun sales? you need a background check to be a little league coach. but you don't need a background check to buy thousands of assault weapons from dealers every day if you want. and as
democratic congressman patrick murphy. he was the first iraq war vet elected to congress. and john saltz, an iraq war veteran and chairman of vote vets dot org. >> let me start with you, congressman. why are these senators today really arguing about president bush and president obama on foreign policy? >> they were, rev. and it was like neocon 101. they were relitigating the iraq war. the iraq war that had nothing to do with 9/1. the iraq war that diverted our attention from bringing bin laden to justice and just about $3 trillion. i mean, it's time to start nation-building at home. and i will tell you, chuck hagel, today should have been a historic day because he's the first enlisted man ever to become secdef. secretary of defense. now let me tell you something, too, they're trying to make him look weak. but look at what happened in 1999. chuck hag ergs l always puts his country first. muslims were getting murdered. it was the worst ethnic cleansing in europe since germany. and then president clinton said we're going to send our men and women into kosovo. he's one of only two republican
want to show everybody, we just got this video in, senator john kerry's nomination for secretary of state, unanimously approved by voice vote on the senate foreign relations committee floor during the meeting that they had today. so that is moving forward now. the full senate expected to vote on kerry's nomination later today. but, again, smooth waters there for what looks like to be the next secretary of state, john kerry. so, again, that vote coming up this afternoon. we do want to move on, though, and talk about who will now be considered the former secretary of state after the vote this afternoon, hillary clinton. she had an opportunity to speak about what it's like to be living in such a bipartisan world of washington, d.c., right now. again, her farewell week has been really one of high aplomb, but take a look at this. >> but it's become more so, and it's also resulted in less productivity, you know? you can be partisan, you can have a strong sense of the rightness of your position, but democracy and certainly legislative bodies require compromise. and you can't let comprom
the iraq surge. as chuck hagel is challenged by john mccain. >> would you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no. >> my reference to the surge being -- >> the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you are right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i am not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show you refuse to answer that question. now, please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why i -- >> i absolutely would like answer answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that. >> is this finally the year for immigration reform? president obama sits down with jose diaz bullart. >> i don't think that it should take many, many months. i think this is something that we should be able to get done certainly this
recall some special moments with geraldo? i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. friday, february 1st. february already. >>> an intense manhunt for one, possibly two suspects after an assistant district attorney gunned down outside a courthouse in texas. mark hos, a prosecutor in kaufmann county, killed after being shot several times as he got out of his car in the courthouse parking lot yesterday. authorities are pleading for leads. the fbi is helping in the case and his boss had a message for those responsible. >> i hope that the people that did this are watching. because we're very confident that we're going to find you, we're going to pull out of whatever hole you are in, and we're going to bring you back and let the people of kaufman county prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. >> drew griffin is live in texas this morning. what's the latest? >> reporter: really, no developments overnight as far as we know. they are looking for what they think is a suspect, possibly in a sedan, brown or silver, there were many witnesses, but they are apparently telling police many diffe
